The Drum


Three girls. Best friends forever. All the big issues: love, sex and religion…
But when they’re kidnapped from home, their world is turned upside down. The only hashtag that matters now is survival.

A funny and fiercely passionate new play about enduring friendship, the power of imagination and the stories behind the headlines that quickly become yesterday’s news.

Written by Alfred Fagon and joint George Devine award winner Theresa Ikoko.

Part of the British Council Edinburgh Showcase 2017 and touring the UK
